The digital edition of FAULHABER motion – the magazine with drive: On this platform we provide you with the very latest news from FAULHABER, report on the many different application areas for FAULHABER products, publish interesting technology articles, present new products, and much more besides.
Thanks to their robust construction, FAULHABER metal planetary gearboxes in combination with FAULHABER DC-motors are ideal for applications which demand the highest torque.
But FAULHABER also offers the right products for moderate output torques – the plastic planetary gearboxes. These are characterised by their exceptional material combination and an optimum price-performance ratio.
Because planetary gearboxes are especially efficient, they are suitable for continuous, intermittent and alternating operation as well as for clockwise and anticlockwise rotation. Their use results in an increased performance of the entire drive train since the choice of the right gearbox allows for a smaller motor and thereby increases the economic efficiency of the entire drive train.

Custom modifications available
Metal planetary gearbox
FAULHABER metal planetary gearboxes are designed for robustness to sustain intermittent or sudden load changes. Depending on the diameter size, these gearboxes can sustain an input speed of up to 20,000 min-1 or an output torque of up to 25 Nm when operating in intermittent cycles. Due to their low backlash characteristic and the resulting high accuracy, the metal planetary gearboxes are also ideally suited for precise positioning applications.
For moderate output torques, plastic FAULHABER planetary gearboxes offer the best price-performance ratio with their exceptional material combination.
To reduce the noise level at higher speeds, the gears of the input stage are constructed of plastic. For the highest torques, vacuum applications or high temperatures, the input stage is available in steel. Furthermore, modfied lubrication aids with difficult operating conditions.
FAULHABER plastic planetary gearheads are also ideal for drives where the power-to-weight ratio plays a role. The assembly "gearbox/motor" is very easy via a gearbox flange which can be screwed on at the front side.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and – where possible – fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully…
At the end of May 2014, the Rosetta space probe will swing into an orbit around the comet 67P/Churyumov‐Gerasimenko in order to, after more closely approaching it in August, map its surface and thus prepare for the landing of Philae. On 12th November 2014, this ballistic lander,...
The Internet of Things makes it possible to produce individualized products automatically – in batches as small as a single product. The path of the component through the assembly process thereby takes on an entirely new meaning. In the Adaptive Machine Platform Prolynk, manufacturing...
